Working really hard at your job only to be rewarded with more work has to be one the hardest career lessons to learn. We would all like to believe that in a just world, doing your best at your job and becoming irreplaceable warrants a raise, but in the real world, it doesn’t work like that. Feeble interns will work themselves to the bone for a shred of experience and pathetic intro wages, thinking that they’ll eventually earn the respect of their higher ups.
But to nepotistic C-level bosses, the only thing that’ll earn their respect is marrying into a powerful family or suddenly becoming an influential sultan. In this story, originally shared on a popular Reddit community, an HR pro was pushed to their limit on the disrespect. After 4 years running the HR department with no help or training, OP pressed on without the promise of a single raise or even a simple ‘thank you’. Finally, they reached the end of their fuse, and are currently looking to nuke the sanctity of the workplace in one fell swoop with their resignation. Scroll onward to enjoy this satisfying tale of rage quitting at its finest– hopefully it’ll encourage you to grab your own career by the horns as well.
